LITTLE VALLEY On July 16, CCB (Cattaraugus County Bank) handed the deed to a piece of property over to South Dayton Mayor Karen Strickland. The piece of property deeded to the village was previously used by many South Dayton area children as a place to play ball. CCB originally acquired the property when purchasing land to build a new banking facility that unifies the existing branches in Cherry Creek and South Dayton.
"We are so pleased we are able to donate this ball field to the village," states CCB CEO and President Salvatore Marranca. "Our philosophy at CCB is to help by reinvesting in the communities we serve. This donation is one way we can do that ... we can help ensure that children continue to have a place to meet, have fun and play one of America's favorite games."
Village officials welcomed the donation and are making plans on how they will move forward, now owning the ball field.

CCB's new 2,300 sq. ft. building will provide customer access and service through three indoor teller stations and one ADA-compatible service window, a new accounts area, a manager's office for private financial discussions, a conference room for meetings and loan closings, computer access for customers and of course, an employee kitchenette and restrooms. In addition, there will be a drive-thru lane, a drive-up ATM for express service and a hitching post. This will be a full service branch with a full staff ready to handle and meet all of the financial needs of present and future customers. Construction is expected to be complete by mid-September. When construction is complete, a grand opening party will take place for all Cherry Creek and South Dayton friends and families.
